Anti-cellulite massages are intended to treat the fat within the subcutaneous connective tissue which can develop over the years. Genetics is usually the main cause of cellulite, as well as malnutrition and physical inactivity. However, some of the top-class athletes can have cellulite, whereas there are overweight, inactive women with no trace of it. In the modern world, cellulite is more of a socio-psychological issue than it is a real health problem. Differences between men and women when it comes to constitution and physiology can only be mitigated to a certain degree. Anti-cellulite treatments consist of strict care and dietary rules combined with daily manual massages. These treatments are carried out on women in ovulation, depending on their hormonal balance. When it comes to women in menopause, the massages can be carried out regardless of the period absence, but they must undergo the same, strict care and dietary regime.

Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. It may also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation. Deep tissue massage offers both physical and psychological benefits. Unlike other massage techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat muscle pain and improve stiffness. But it can still help to you unwind mentally, too.

'Lomi lomi' translates to 'rub rub' in Hawaiian, and reflects the broad, flowing strokes made with the therapist's fingers, thumbs, palms, arms and elbows. Macadamia, palm and coconut oils are usually used as moisturisers in lomi lomi massage, to keep the strokes smooth and to nourish the skin. Many believe that the healing art of Lomi lomi was brought to Hawaii by the earliest Polynesian settlers, while others believe that it is deeply infused with the practice of ‘living aloha’ - a carry-over from ancient Hawaii and the mystical land of Mu. The Hawaiian lomi lomi massage can also be referred to as Kahuna bodywork.

Our lymphatic system helps eliminate your body’s waste. A healthy, active lymphatic system uses the natural movements of smooth muscle tissue to do this. However, surgery, medical conditions, or other damage can cause fluids to build up in your lymph system and your lymph nodes, a condition known as lymphedema. If you’ve ever had a surgery on or involving your lymph nodes, your doctor may have suggested lymphatic drainage massage performed by a certified massage or physical therapist. Lymphatic drainage is a medical procedure that involves all lymph nodes in the body, stimulating the lymph flow all over.
